An extremely high level production
15 December 2004 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

*Good* literature is not an asset that belongs to just one nation, but rather, it belongs to all mankind. Portuguese writer Eça de Queiroz is one of those whose wit and fluency can be appreciated by anybody, wherever he is or wherever he is from. "Os Maias" is a masterpiece, definitely not one of those works that is easy to be produced, a great challenge to any actor or director. Fortunately, for everyone, the production of this miniseries could manage to overcome all and every obstacle in a way to present us with one of the best works ever on TV, that can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere. Some of the most beautiful Potuguese landscapes, in a perfect re-creation of a time when romantic views started to fall to be replaced with a harder, not so pleasant reality. A must watch.
